Weekly poll results: Sunlight legibility and pixel density key to great display

When it comes to screens, sunlight legibility is vital, according to our poll. But requirements go beyond utility, a great display needs high pixel density and accurate colors with contrast not far back.

The poll also settles the color debate accurate colors trump punchy colors. We were pleased to see our readers are knowledgeable about things like sRGB and DCI-P3 they are increasingly gaining support on mobile (and desktop) so app and web developers should start paying more attention to them.

The debate in the comments mentioned LCD vs. OLED, but also talked at length about (HDR (including true 10-bit displays vs. 8-bit + FRC). 120Hz came up often, but the poll results show its a luxury rather than a must-have.

And instead of things like Always On Display (a battery drain), power efficiency was rated highly. People want those long screen-on times.
